The Snellman Group is a family business in the food industry. Its roots are in Pietarsaari, a town in the Ostrobothnia region of Finland. Our business areas are Meat Processing and Ready Meals. Finnish origin, cooperation with local producers, pure ingredients and high-quality products have constituted the core of our operations for nearly 70 years.
Our story began when brothers Kurt and Lars Snellman started a sausage factory in a small basement apartment in the old wooden house district of Pietarsaari in 1951. They wanted to make meat and sausage products that were of a higher quality and tasted better than the products available back then. Over the years, our small family business has developed into a group of companies, but we continue to operate openly and close to people. Our values guide us in taking responsibility for the well-being of people, animals and the environment. This is the only way we can genuinely do good.
